Progressive movement activists gathered in Washington on Monday declared themselves dismayed, even angry, at President Obama and Democrats in Congress for being too timid and compromising in pursuing change on issues from health care to the environment to the economy.
The speakers at the America’s Future Now conference that began Monday called for a political uprising independent of the Democratic Party.
“This has been the greatest flurry of reform in over 50 years, and yet through it we have grown more dissatisfied — and for good reason,” said Robert L. Borosage, co-director of the Campaign for America’s Future, said in a speech opening the conference. “The White House has been an uncertain trumpet.”
Arianna Huffington, co-founder of the liberal news Web site the Huffington Post, referred to Obama’s 2008 campaign message by saying: “It’s clear that ‘hope’ is not enough. What we need is Hope 2.0, and that is taking matters into our own hands.”
"Angry", "Uprising", "taking matters into our own hands" - Sounds like a bunch of racists to me.
